He is no fool who
gives what he cannot keep
to gain what he cannot lose!
Last Sunday, I shared the story behind Jim Elliot’s famous quote which he wrote in his journal at age 22 while a senior at Wheaton College. Martyred with 4 of his missionary team mates seven years later, Elliot embodied the self-giving love that is at the heart of Christ and His Kingdom.
The motivation for giving ourselves and our resources come from the heart of Jesus himself:
“Whoever seeks to preserve his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life
will keep it.” (Luke 17:33)
